Do you guys include basing in your time? Strictly speaking its not painting unless you're painting the base. I think I'm going to try but with maybe mostly a mono- base colour model for the body aka the Horrors earth golem or HQ skeleton but would that be cheating. I think even then I'll struggle! I guess washes can really sabotage your efforts given the drying time?

There are no strict rules but the first examples didn't include the base. Washes are fine as lo,g as you have a hairdryer at hand ;)

Or you wash within the hour and don't touch it again once the wash has dried...

My 1 hour challenge:

Took me about 50 mins in total before varnish, used the 3 stage method descibed in Foundry Paintbook I had, added a Quick Devlan Mud wash & then Varnished after it had dried, quite pleased with the result considering the time.

As previously posted elsewhere, here's my latest attempt at a one hour painted job - lot's of dry brushing with limited palate. All done well within the hour with just the base to do :D

Enjoy

Quite a classic miniature you picked here. And the paintjob is nicely different to those I have seen before.
I like it very much.

He looks great Paul ! I love that vibrant red and as Niibl, it's ot a scheme one would expect but it works wonders. How come you did not use the remaining time to base your model then by the way ? :D

Thanks for the comments guys, as for not completing the base - I originally used superglue to stick the model to the plastic base, so when I had completed the painting (two basic colours, applied with very little care or attention until it came to the tooth & claw) I had the model proud of the plastic base (ugly), if, I'd simply painted the base and dipped it in flock, there'd have been a ridge around the model - so I applied resin and had to wait for it to dry, hence no base decoration, sorry.

Also all my basing material is currently in the garage and I tend to do basing in batches to get a consistent look across a warband / army. :D

Excuses, ecuses, that will do for this once :D
As a true Taylorist, I can only agree with the batch basing. ;)
